- Annoying Pop-up's
- Shows commercial adverts
- Connects to the internet without permission
It is rather peculiar why one would name a program Sad Cloud when the application is supposed to help users save money on their online purchases. After all, would you want to install a program called Sad Cloud? On the other hand, if this application is already running on your system, we strongly recommend that you remove Sad Cloud from your computer, as this application is nothing but an adware program, designed to promote third-party content. The people behind this app earn money as you get redirected to unfamiliar websites. Sad Cloud gives you nothing in return, so there is no need to keep this application.
Once Sad Cloud manages to enter a target system, it adds an extension to your default browser. Take note that the application does not function on Google Chrome, although the information at sadcloudplace.com says that the application is compatible with all the major web browsers. Our research shows that the newer Google Chrome versions simply block Sad Cloud because the application is not considered safe enough. We can see why it would be thought to be a potential computer security threat. Sad Cloud promotes third-party content that it does not review, so if malevolent third parties decide to make use of this application to distribute their content, sooner rather than later you could get infected with malware.
All by itself Sad Cloud is not a malicious infection. This adware application belongs to the SuperWeb family of adware applications (just like Simple for You, Dollar Dream, Wooden Seal, etc.), and the main reason it enters your computer is money. Sad Cloud does not try to steal your savings directly. It simply displays commercial ads when you browse the Internet, and if you click any of the Sad Cloud ads, you get redirected to third-party sites related to online marketing scams and other suspicious activities. At the same time, each time you click an ad, the people behind Sad Cloud get paid through the Pay-per-Click system.
However, do not forget that Sad Cloud might have entered your computer bundled with other freeware apps, and they should not be left to their own devices. Unnecessary applications clutter your system and expose you to potential security threats. Thus, the sooner you delete all the unwanted applications, the better.
